The film is ugly, disturbing, and not for everyone -- it's also fascinating, thought-provoking, and rich with religious allegories.

It's a good thing that films as bonkers as this exist...

It can be a frustrating film at times, but also so intriguing.

Mother! is what happens when a dude has an idea he thinks is brilliant and no one checks him on it.

A deliberately opaque movie. Like looking into a self-reflective mirror you will take away whatever you put into it. The only thing sure about it is that it is most confounding studio movie of the year.

It all goes horribly wrong in the ridiculous finale

Aronofsky gleefully drags his audience through a bevy of carnage but maintains just the pace to gaslight viewers into understanding the film's Polanskian brand of logic.

Mother! is a dense, twisting fever dream spawned from some sort of mad genius. Depending who you are, you will either end up fascinated by the whole thing or confused and angry with it.

Aronofsky manages to make the film hide the narrative weaknesses under the curtain of the allegories that make up society.

To fully appreciate the mother! experience, you must see it in a theater, where you are forced to commit. You either engage with it or you run screaming from the theater.

It was pretty obvious what was going on to me.

This was such nonsense.

mother! dives down a dream logic rabbit hole and creates a reality where anything can happen.

Still, pretentious and overblown as it most certainly is, there is enjoyment to be had while watching (or even re-watching) Mother!

...intelligent, perceptive, and special. Having said all that, while this is a film I profoundly admire, I never want to see this film again.

This is a work of art that demands respect regardless of how one individual reacts to it.

It is insane, if one can't keep up with its nimble tonal jumps and mercurial emotional logic. Indeed, that's part of the fun of Mother! It's circuit training for the nerves, Crossfit for the critically minded.

The sum of mother! is a stew of a very basic thriller stretched out with surrealism and freshman philosophy.

Masterpiece. We'll be talking about it for years.

It's bad. It's bad because it's both too obvious yet not obvious enough. It's bad because it's a 15-minute short film's worth of ideas expanded into two hours. And it's especially bad because the experience of watching mother! is so unpleasant.
